    Hi Barry!

    At the moment Sisense does not have a (public) REST API to manage or add Drill Hierarchies.

    I'd love to read more about your use case for it - developing a public API for this feature has come up a few times as an idea, but we've never seen any demand for this. If you could share your "user story" and the automation process you had in mind, either here or via devexp@sisense.com it would be greatly appreciated - it would help us evaluate the need and see what we can potentially do about it.

    Thanks!

    Ultimately, I have an ElastiCube template and whenever I setup this ElastiCube template or move the cube to another server, the drill hierarchies need to be setup again as well - by an admin - an extra step that could easily be missed and forgotten.

     

    The drill hierarchies seem like a good fit for a feature that could be structured within the ElastiCube. This makes it easier than making REST API calls to setup the proper drill hierarchies. 

    In the case, that the ElastiCube cannot support such a feature. I'd want to be able to make automated calls to setup the drill hierarchy e.g. Column A -> Column B -> Column C

    As this isn't a documented endpoint, it is subject to change, but here's an overview of the endpoints you would need for your use case.

    I have this use case as well!  Any update on Sisense developing a (public) REST API to manage or add Drill Hierarchies?
